Vantage™

The E-Z UP® Vantage™ shelter is designed to stand out at any event with its stylish grey components that not only look good but also provide extra strength and support. It has a higher peak than the Pyramid with a steeper roof line, making it stand taller in a side-by-side comparison, The availability of custom graphics, including full-bleed digital images, allows for a personalized and professional touch. This makes the Vantage™ shelter ideal for commercial marketers who want to reinforce their message effectively.

Pyramid™

The Pyramid™ shelter boasts a modern design with seven vibrant color options for the fabric top and two coordinating frame colors. This variety makes it a visually appealing choice for those who prioritize aesthetics. The clear span cathedral ceiling not only enhances the look but also provides increased headroom and better heat dissipation. It's peak sits lower than the Vantage giving it a sleek and sporty profile.

Size and Space

Vantage™

The Vantage™ comes in two sizes: 10’ x 10’ and 10' x 20’, providing flexibility depending on your space requirements. Both sizes offer ample room for various uses, from craft shows to beach days.

I bought both of them and I think that the Vantage is much stronger and durable than the Pyramid. The center pole makes a huge difference
